EXETER, New Hampshire — Former U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley got the two-way battle against former President Donald Trump she was hoping for after Gov. Ron DeSantis (R-FL) ended his White House run on Sunday.
But how she fares against the former president on Tuesday in New Hampshire’s first-in-the-nation primary could very well determine whether she shares a similar fate.
Haley’s campaign had once claimed she could win in the state but tempered expectations after Trump’s decisive victory in Iowa last week.
“I think we always want to have as many people come out to vote,” Haley told reporters during a gaggle as she barnstormed New Hampshire over the weekend. “We want them to show the power of their voice. We want to get out there.”
